Sequence Ravelled Out of Sound

I felt a Cleaving in my Mind --
As if my Brain had split --
I tried to match it -- Seam by Seam --
But could not make them fit. 
The thought behind, I strove to join
Unto the thought before --
But Sequence ravelled out of Sound
--
Like Balls -- upon a Floor

Emily Dickinson (1864)


These words ring true of my ADD mind.
